Retro beauty is given an artistic twist in the latest edition of the online magazine Violet Grey. Draped in a sheer veil, model Chanel Iman is a glamorous vision in deep red lipstick, chiseled cheekbones and, of course, a classic cat eye. Although the photoshoot itself is short and sweet, the retro beauty showcased throughout will resonate with people to days to come.

Shot by photographer Ben Hassett, the retro beauty was inspired by Bianca Jagger, Linda Evangelista and Josephine Baker. Created by hair stylist Tom Kono and makeup artist Violette, the retro beauty editorial is accompanied by an article in which Iman share how she has learned to say 'no' in the industry, "But as you grow as a model, you figure out what works for you and you learn to say, ‘Ok, you can’t do this, you have to DO this.’"
